“Some great quality entries in bullock, heifer and cull cow rings, with a very good mix of Continentals and traditional breeds. Store trade was very good”

Some 350 entries including a small number of calves went under the hammer at Kilrush Mart’s Spring Cattle Show and Sale on Wednesday (February 20th).

Friesian bull calves made from €40 to €110 with Hereford calves topping out at €270.

“Some great quality entries in bullock, heifer and cull cow rings, with a very good mix of Continentals and traditional breeds. Store trade very good but beef a tougher trade.” A spokesperson for the mart said.
